A few miles down the road is Dankworth Ponds State Park

Dankworth Pond State Park is a day-use park that is a sub-unit of Roper Lake State Park.  The park opened in 1982 and 150 acres of land surrounding a 15-acre pond.  Definitely the place to go if you fish the pond is now home to bass, bluegill, trout and catfish, and trout.

There is a 2-mile loop trail that winds through the park, known as the Dos Arroyos Trail.

Along its course of the trail is the Dankworth Pond.

You can go off the trail a bit to where there is an area called Dankworth Village. The village is constructed of prehistoric Native American dwellings. These dwellings are typical of Safford area sites and showcase both Apache and Mogollon construction styles.

Very nice park to walk around to see the Indian village and all the scenery.
